Help Counselling is a registered charity (no. 1140721), providing compassionate, skilled, and affordable individual counselling for adults over the age of 18. We aim to support those who might not otherwise be able to access such support: 44% of our clients have an annual income of less than £10,000. Up to 200 sessions per week are offered to our London community.
We work with clients on a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, abuse, addictions, relationships, domestic violence and bereavement. 1 in 4 adults experience mental health problems (Mental Health Foundation, 2012) and this in turn affects family life, relationships, and life in the workplace.
Counselling at Help gives people the support they need to transform life crises and challenges into opportunities for personal development and creative change.
The majority of our clients are from the tri-borough: Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster
Our counsellors volunteer their time at Help for free. The majority are in the final years of a 5-year training in integrative counselling and psychotherapy, and are supervised according to BACP/UKCP guidelines.
We are fortunate to have over 50 counsellors volunteering at Help. They come from a variety of backgrounds and bring their own unique skills and life experience to their work.

We are privileged to have an incredibly committed and hard-working Board of Trustees, all of whom come from different backgrounds and provide a wealth of knowledge and expertise that benefit the charity.
